Continuing on my spamfest...has anybody watched the whole series of, Around the World in 80 Days (by Michael Palin, former Monty Python)? I've watched it a long time ago and in fact i've watched it more than once. It was on last year on one of the Sky documentary channels (DC travel most likely) where it showed every episode from the beginning - wow, more than 8 hours.

I really like it - best documentary ever. If you haven't the slightest clue what i'm going on about, here's a brief summary from Wikipedia.


Michael Palin: Around the World in 80 Days is a 1989 BBC television series (and an accompanying book) presented by comedian and actor Michael Palin documenting his eighty-day trip around the world. Palin was to not use any form of travel that was not around during Jules Verne's book, Around the World in 80 Days in 1873; most importantly, he was to use no aircraft. He followed Phileas Fogg's route as closely as possible during the series. However, Palin encountered several setbacks that Fogg did not, partly due to traveling with a five person camera crew, his Passepartout. It would be Palin's first travel series, and they would be followed by such series as Pole to Pole, Sahara with Michael Palin and Himalaya with Michael Palin.

It's fantastic. Palin as a presenter is great.


Excellent



What was your favourite country he visited? I really liked the ones where he was aboard the Neptune (that was the ship name right? I can't remember). I'm going to buy the DVD series today.

Mega bump because recently, i've been watching the whole series again. God, I swear after watching the episodes, you actually feel as if you did go around the world in 80 days!

Bumped from the dead. I'm rewatching it again! I've just purchased the Palin Collection from Amazon as well as New Europe which I've been dying to see since it came out. Around the World in 80 days is so addictive. When you've finished watching the series, you actually feel as if you've visited those places!
